real limiting. when you look at barack obama's first meeting with angela merkel in london when the global economy was on fire is interesting. she laid down the gauntlet. we are not going to play by your rules. we are not going to spend like you are telling us to do. it has been interesting as a superpower to look at all limits we have even influencing a nation like germany. and yet brussels i asked to you think america has the same growth we once had that could influence the international system? i would love to see how you see the challenges ahead in at geostrategic context? >> i think a strong economy is critical to u.s. national security, strong military. in this post financial crisis era, economics and finance are every bit as important as traditional diplomatic and military levels of policy. using the word throw away, a measure of how much nuclear megatonnage could be delivered, i think we have moved from an era where the measure of the nation's strength or vulnerability to an era where sovereign interest rates were a measure of strength or vulnerability so the move from t

for the president of the united states. at the white house today, senior obama administration officials met with liberal leaders and union officials. "the washington post" reports that one told him after the meeting, quote, would the white house go off the cliff if it's between that and compromising their core principles? i was left with the impression that they would. illinois democratic senator dick durbin spoke today at the liberal center for american progress where he said this about the possibility of going off the cliff which fears of this show know is is really more of a curb than a cliff. >> some have called let's go over the cliff and watch what happens. we know if we're not careful, it will in fact stop economic growth and hurt everyone through every income category, particularly those most vulnerable. >> what he did not say is he must not go off the cliff. because the cliff is president obama's and the congressional democrats leverage over republicans. if we do go off the cliff or the curb on january 1st, a republican nightmare will occur. all income tax rates will go up and defe

alternatives. > > thank you. president obama hits the road this week to talk directly with americans about budget plans, possibly in hopes of putting pressure on his republican opponents to compromise on a budget deal. the president will meet with middle class americans today at the white house and then travel to the suburbs of philadelphia friday. top ceos from across the country including llyod blankfein of goldman sachs will be talking with congressional leaders on the hill. those same ceos will then meet seperatly with the president. despite signs that negotations between the gop and president obama may be faltering, the white house spokesman is putting out an optimistic tone. "i would point to comments by members of both parties that demonstrate, i think, significant movement toward compromise that, as i have seen and as you and others i'm sure have reported on, demonstrate a change in tone." the president and republicans have just 33 days to avoid another recession. at the end of the year, tax breaks expire and drastic spending cuts are due to take effect. bracing for those higher ta
obama is going to meet with his former challenger mitt romney at the white house tomorrow. that is exciting. then also there is something that is going on right now. there is a meeting right now between the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice, who has been under a lot of criticism lately for the things she said after the benghazi attack in libya. and also with the top republican in the homeland security committee, senator susan collins of maine the republican from maine. we think that meeting might break up any minute while we're in this program live and if it does i'll interrupt what i am doing or about to do hopefully to have a few words with the good senator about how the meeting went. if it was anything like yesterday, ooh, didn't go so well with the senators she met with yesterday. so forgive me if i have to interrupt. i want to go back to the whole thing about office pools. i know a lot of you do this. you get in on these lotto winnings with your friends at work and if you actually win one of the big lotto pools with like oo other best friends at work you have wha

reportedly held a private meeting with senior obama administration white house officials. according to the "washington post" the groups were told not to worry about any entitlement reforms or big budget cuts. the so-called safety net programs according to them are not going to be touched and the progressive groups walked away feeling very happy. the report say the white house feels it does not need to compromise, period and is willing to let the big tax hike happen on everybody. the big tax hike is what everybody will face not just the rich or the middle class. they think they'll be in a better position to negotiate with the g.o.p. after that happens. chris stirewalt joins me, host of power play on foxnews.com. >> i was a little frightened, i thought something i, really bad was happening instead of the standard badness. megyn: that is terrifying. [laughter] back down to business, the progressive groups, the union groups meet with white house officials and are very happy, which, you know, strikes fear down the spines of republicans out there i suppose. but can it really be that presi
before the meeting, that's not a good sign. what obama does for the nomination, i don't kkow, but, clearly, what we have is an administration who can't get the story straight. i think as long as that's out there, this is going to be a very troubled period for susan rice and her perspective nomination. lou: the idea is that any president as a matter of tradition has the right to his choice to fill whatever office is at issue. in this case, the secretary of state. this kind of dissension and contradiction and contest between the two parties over ambassador rice really creates a different dynamic. do you think? >> well, it creates a different dynamic, i think, on two levels. number one, the appointment of the secretary of state is an extremely important thing for the country, but in this instance, again, it can want be used as a side show that obscures a much more important thing that we have to get to the bottom of here which is why didn't commander in chief take action he should have taken to protects americans? as far as susan rice is concerned, she is actually in a position now s
: president obama will try to build more support when he meets with middle class americans here in washington today. he'll ask them how the fiscal cliff could impact their lives. on tuesday he invited small business owners into the oval office to offer their ideas. >> they had one message for the president which is they need certainty. please get this deal done as soon as possible. >> reporter: but spending any time on capitol hill it's easy to see a deal forthcoming isn't coming soon. >> there's been little progress with the republicans which is a disappointment to me. >> their hard left doesn't want to change anything ever. they think any dollar spent or any commitment made by the federal government on any program at any time ought to be there in perpetuity. >> we are not going to accept an unfair deal that will hurt middle class today and protect the wealthiest americans. >> reporter: the president and congressional leaders have no talks scheduled for this week. now the president's meeting today with leaders from goldman sachs and comcast and yahoo! among others on friday he's hitting the
the irony here is that obama and boehner still have no plans to meet themselves face-to-face. the two did meet before congress' thanksgiving recess along with the other two three members of the house and the senate. they had plans to meet again this week but still nothing is scheduled. it is not a great sign and shows that the two groups are practically incapable of working together. the last time obama and boehner tried putting together a big deal over the budget, that completely collapsed and this time around, the american people are getting less and less optimistic that congress will be able to reach a deal before the tax hikes and spending cuts kick in just 33 days. it is going to look bad for congress if they cannot get this done and some republicans are saying it's time to give in. politico's also reporting oklahoma representative tom cole told his g.o.p. colleagues yesterday to move forward with the president's he plan to extend the tax breaks for everyone except the top 2%. cole said that he does not agree with raisin
